ESSAR GROUP started their campus drive process by given a big presentation that takes 1 hour 45 mints almost. In this presentation they clear all our doubt about all the process and company profile.

C. Technical and HR interview.
(A) Online Written Test:-
In this online written Test there was 4 Section with 170 questions that u need to complete only 120 mints. Quantitative aptitude, Reasoning , English ,and Technical.
It is the most important round of the selection process that we know. The first three sections not too much tough if anybody prepare from R. S. Agarwal and GRE paper solve by Barron 12th edition. But one thing that needs to be follow all time or you can say most tough that is The time. In all the section have individual time frame. So its necessary to follow up the time.
For the technical section, they asked basic question from the whole instrumentation. For this section u must prepared well.
They asked from all the instrumentation related subject and some basic Electrical and Electronics question. So to qualify this round you must be clear the basic fundamental of under mention topic -
some of questions like....
(1) About Electronics and Electrical Measurement Instrument (specification, Use, Range, material.).
(2) Range of any specific type thermocouple, RTD, also some basic problem.
(3) Digital Instrumentation like PLC, SCADA, DCS etc.
(4) Digital Electronics (flip-flop, Counter, Register) and basic of Electronics (Diode, Transistor etc. )
(5) Sensor and Transducers & their principles use.
(6) Op-amp based problem and question.
(7) Process Parameter like Temperature, Pressure, Level, Flow is very important part .Range of the instrumentation, where and why use.
I completed my written test at 6:15 PM, actually it started late. Then after 2 hours they announced the written test result and I was selected for GD Round. The GD round started about 10 PM.
Our topic in GD was What is best for Power generation for Future India thermal, nuclear or Hydro power plant?
In our group no was eliminated. It was a superb experience, we all seven members was from same college. And we got the selection result of GD in next day after Noon. Then again I went for Personal Interview on 13th April but for some problem interview was postponed and I went again 14th April for my interview at 8:15 AM.Another interesting thing is waiting for me here that I got to know after reaching the spot that my interview will take over phone.At 9:35 AM on 14th April2011, my interview was started, initially I was tensed because it was my first interview over phone but by the help of HR I get some confident and I carried on the interview.
There were two sections in personal interview.
(i) Technical (More Important).
(i) In technical, they asked me about myself first . the Conversation of telephonic interview is below. In the other side of telephone three members was as an Interviewer.
Interviewer: - Good morning,
Me:- Good Morning Sir,
Interviewer: - what about you ?
Me:- I answered also I mention in this parts my favorite subject (Process parameter Measurement), about my Industrial training and about my final year project.
Interviewer:- Say something about Electromagnetic Flow Meter.
Interviewer:- Electromagnetic Flow Meter is Bidirectional or unidirectional and why?
Me In first Attempt I done Mistake but when I describe it became correct and the appreciate.
Interviewer: - How many types Ultrasonic flow meter is use in industry and explain any one?
Me:- it was tough to explain in over phone but I tried my best cause there have no scope to writing the equation , although I explained all the Equation over phone slowly.
Interviewer: - what u knows about pressure bellows?
Me:- I am not prepared well in this question so I said sir I am not getting the question actually. Then Sir said gives some examples of pressure bellows and I answered.
Interviewer:- Temperature range of k type thermocouple and Combination metal .
Me; - I answered well.
Interviewer: - what is calibration? How can we get to know the instrument is not calibrated and how we calibrate it?
Me:- I was explained the Answered but I felt that they were not satisfied by my answered. Then I again explain slowly with mentioning some static and dynamic Characteristics of instrument.
Interviewer: - what is error and what is Parallax error? Explain.
Me:- I explained this question very confidently because it was too much easy. Ha Ha
Then very few question asked by them which is related with HR and I answered all the question with my ability. They asked like why do u want to join Essar, Family background etc (very basic).
For this HR part I will suggest you please give the answered correctly with confident and honesty and positive thinking.
My interview was over but I was very scared about my interview because I dont see the person who took my interview and also they were satisfied by my answered or not .But I was in positive always because my answered interview satisfied me.
After 20-25 days they send the result to our college TPO. & I was selected. I was too much happy that day although this was my 2nd JOB from college.
In 18th July2011 I joined in ESSAR GROUP. Now I am a part of this big MNC organization. I am in Essar Power Limited.
I think my experience may be helping you in your future selection drive for ESSAR GROUP and other Core company also.
